Choose Life

The Abortion Legalisation Act 2021 is one of the most extreme (pro-abortion) laws in the world. We believe every human being, even the child in the womb, has the right to life. The unborn child has a fundamental human right and should be legally protected. A 2019 poll found strong support for the unborn child having human rights and being legally protected once a heartbeat is detected, and only a small minority thinking that life doesn’t begin until the child is born. We love both the mother and her unborn child. 

Get informed, and let’s work together to make abortion “unthinkable” for the majority of New Zealanders.
